A group of artists from Tamworth, Peterborough, Cheltenham, Brighton and the Netherlands have come together to create new works for an online streaming project.
The Unity Online Paint Jam was started last year to keep artists active and engaged during the pandemic. Vic Brown, founder of the New Urban Era art project, said the project's success last year has led them to decide to make it an annual event.
The group, which has received funding from Arts Council England, was joined by artists Nol, RenNL and Dodici from the Netherlands.
Meanwhile, artists in Staffordshire worked on 72ft walls at Tamworth Graffiti Tunnels.
The Unity Online Paint Jam's streaming event in 2020 had 17,000 views and has allowed artists to talk to one another while working.
"It made people feel like they were still together and kept people going," Mr Brown said.
